    This makes room for Rick white on the 40 man roster. Hopefully Bubba Nelson clears waivers and we can send him to AAA.
    Does anyone know anything about Mile Lacoss?
    That Chris Reitsma trade was a real winner.

    Nelson has cleared waivers and been assigned to AAA, apparently.

    not sure if there's a place to check this, but i seem to remember in mid-June Nelson had a slightly above 3.00 ERA and a 10+ K/9 rate...and then at the end of the year 4.61 ERA, 9.21 K/9 rate.

    M2....you are right....it was more the aversion to college players, than his speed.
    I wonder if they would have drafted Fred Lynn if they had the chance.


    Well if they still have BN....then on one hand you say good and on the other you say....well something must be wrong with him or else someone would have picked him up.

    yes, Reitsma would have made the reds an even better 5th/6th place team.

    THANK LORD Bubba Nelson is gone!!!!

    That kid couldn't have pitched his way out of a wet paper sack! Ugh.

    I am just sorry we gave up a quality arm like Reitsma for a sack of seeds like Bubba "long ball" Nelson!

    Doc Scott pointed out he cleared waivers. He's still ours. Maybe he'll either wake up or he was just overhyped.

    Care to define your definition of wet paper sack? Have you seen him pitch?

    Ya, he can't pitch, thats my definition. The only one who still thinks he can pitch or will ever climb out of the minors is his daddy. Wait? Bubba Daddy? Is that you?

    5HR in 68 IP last year, and he K'd 70. The kid turned a corner and embraced a new role as Chatt's closer. He isn't without his flaws, but they optioned him to L'ville, not Chatt. I think he can improve and have a major league career in relief.

    I also think that in those numbers was a short period of maybe a week or so where the wheels just fell off, but he recovered. It is interesting that he cleared waivers. Worthless stock around the league, but then the majors is littered with guys like that. He could be one, hopefully with the Reds.

    Have you seen him pitch?

    Did you see what he did last year in his new role?

    Do you know he is at the right level for his age?

    Did he steal your girlfired or something?

    Look, I know your not alone in your love for Reitsma (which I dont see the adoration for a middle relief pitcher who is average) but can you suport why you hammer on Nelson?
